It's a Simple Choice…

"There are those who think that the problem of immigration can easily be solved by walls on our borders and strict law enforcement in our country. I wish they could have joined me last Sunday afternoon at St. James Church in New Bedford. I saw first-hand the pain and suffering of the families and community ripped apart by the recent enforcement raid by the Department of Homeland Security.

The reality of illegal immigration is anything but simple and the solutions are difficult. The Department of Homeland Security was ready with hundreds of officers to subdue a group of frightened workers, but they were totally unprepared to deal with the aftermath of their raid. DHS knew that it would be detaining young parents, and yet it had no effective plan to identify and help the children who would be left alone. The photographs of bewildered, desperate, crying children brought home the full horror of the government raid distinguished by its callousness".

Sen. Edward Kennedy

"As if it were our fault that they came here illegally. We are so into blaming America for everything. If it's a law, it's a law, there are consequences."
Rep. Tom Tancredo

…As to what kind of America we end up with.

I certainly hope we get a wall built soon - then we won't have to worry about people dying in the desert or scenes such as this.

Of course Teddy Kennedy doesn't REALLY care about these people, but you knew that, didn't you?
